The largest waste incinerator in the United States is in Chester, PA. Most of the waste burned in Chester comes from other communities, including much of Philadelphia’s trash, and often its recycling as well. For over 25 years, Chester Residents Concerned for Quality Living (CRCQL, pronounced “circle”) has been organizing to shut down the incinerator and preserve healthy air quality for Chester residents. Visit CRCQL’s website for many ways to support the fight for clean air in Chester!
